In your bag 1022, Erick Tomaliwan
Nice, Erick has a black and white, black and white bag for us. Check it out.

I always go to this section of the site as it always intrigues me what people carry around.

To start things off, my name is Erick Tomaliwan. I often categorise myself as a try-hard hobbyist and I won’t explain why. This is probably the third time I changed the contents of my bag as I did a brand switch just a few weeks ago, however this is the setup I am most happy with and the product of my short experience. The picture is in black and white because I love black and white.

I chose the Billingham Hadley Pro because of its stealth look.
Also, Kai and Lok of DigitalRev uses them.


Bessa R2 + 50mm Voigtlander Nokton F/1.5 Chrome Edition.

Sony RX100

Why these two? I used to carry a Sony A7 + 55mm combo until I noticed that the shots I was taking more bad shots than good ones, quantity over quality. I decided to switch to film to discipline myself and just carry a compact if really needed. However, I still use the a7 whenever I go to a more serious shoot.


Ilford FP4

Ilford XP2

I don’t know how to develop films L so I have to ask people to develop it for me with a special care for the FP4.


Business cards

Asthma inhaler

iBasso DX90 + DUNU DN-2000 (yes, I carry a mp3 player)

Moleskine Star Wars Edition (May the force be with my photography journey)

Lens pen

Note: equipment was taken with a Ricoh GRD IV. When it comes to street photography, Snap focus and zone focusing are kings.
